Good morning, and welcome to the KMG Chemicals, Inc. Second Quarter 2011 Conference Call. We would like to begin by reminding you that the information in this conference call includes certain forward-looking statements that are based upon assumptions that in the future may prove not to have been accurate and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including statements as to the future performance of the company. Although the company believes that the expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations or any of its forward-looking statements will prove to be correct.
Factors that could cause results to differ include, but are not limited to, the loss of primary customers, successful implementation of internal plans; product demand; the impact of competing products; increases in the prices of raw materials and active ingredients; successful acquisition and integration of additional product lines and businesses; the condition of capital markets in the light of interest rate and currency fluctuations and general economic conditions; environmental liability; the ability to obtain registration and re-registration of products; increased environmental compliance cost of products; and general political and economic risks and uncertainties.
With that, I will now like to turn the call over to Neal Butler, President and CEO. Neal, please go ahead.
